Pearson, Lucy Edmundson Co-Star 
In ASB Play, "The Bishop's Mantle 

"The Bishop's Mantle", a sparkl 
ing drama with a message for our 
times, has been chosen as the an- 
nual Homecoming play. It will be 
produced on Friday, November 
8th at 2:30 p. m., and again on 
Monday evening, November 12th, 
Homecoming Day. 

Marvin Baker, head of the 
Speech and Dramatics Depart- 
ment here at George Fox col- 
lege will be directing the play, as- 
sisted by student director, Betty 
Mae Hockett. Mr. Baker an- 
nounces that the cast has been 
selected after tryouts, held last 
Wednesday, October 10th. He re- 
vealed that Don Pearson will be 
playing the leading role as Hilary 
Laurens, the newly appointed rec- 
tor of St. Matthews, a fashionable 
church in a large eastern city. 
Lucy Edmundson will be featured 
as Alexa (Lex) McColIy, Hilary's 
vivacious fiancee. 

In supporting roles are cast 
Elmer Kendall as Dick Laurens, 
Hilary's brother; Bob Adams as 
Hastings, the elderly sexton of St. 
Matthews; Dick Zeller as J. V. 
DAin, a prominent member of the 
church; and Janet Hinshaw as 
Maudie Dunn, the as yet unmar- 
ried daughter of Mr. Dunn. 

Randall Emry will play Mr. Al- 
vord, wealthy and influential mem- 
ber of the church, who is also the 
senior vestryman. Jo Ellen Ork- 
ney will be playing Miss Mow- 
bray, secretary to the rector. Mar- 
ian Perry will appear as Mrs. 
Wainer Reed, an elderly member 
of St. Matthews. Lois Bain will 
impersonate Miss Hettie Brecken- 
ridgc, a socially prominent spin- 
ster, elderly, wealthy and domin- 
ating. Gay Foley will perform the 
part of Sambantha Adams, the 
wife of Hilary's assistant. Jo 
Hendricks will appear as Mary 
Perkins McComb, a girl from the 
tenements which surround St. 
Matthews church. 

Kenny, Math Head, 
Receives Doctorate; 
Willcuts Has MHE 

George S. Kenny, head of the 
physics and mathematics depart- 
ment, finished all work this sum- 
mer for his Doctor of Philosophy 
degree from the California Insti- 
tute of Technology in Los An- 
geles. Although Dr. Kenny has 
actually received his degree, it 
will be conferred next June at 
the regular spring commence- 

Dr. Kenny was doing his re- 
search in connection with "Gyro- 
magnetic ratios by means of the 
Einstein-dc Haas effect". 

With his Ph.D. in physics and 
minor in mathematics, Dr. Kenny 
has been working on his doctorate 
since the summer of 1940. 
Home Ec Head Gains Degree 

Final work was completed this 
summer by Helen Willcuts, head 
of the home economics department 
and dean of women, for her Mas- 
ter of Home Economics degree 
from Oregon State college. 

Miss Willcuts reports that, al- 
though her work was completed in 
August, the degree would not 
actually be conferred until next 
June since they are conferred only 
once a year. 

Clothing and Textiles was Miss 
Willcut's major which was obtain- 
ed at OSC, and Education was 
her minor field, received at the 

Behind the scenes win be cos- 
tume and make-up managers, Gay 
Foley and Marie Williams. Lucy 
Edmundson will be in charge of 
the scenery; Garth Reece and Dick 
Jones will serve as property man- 
agers, while Bob Sharpless will 
take care of all the lights and 
lighting. Jerry Carr will handle 
the financial details as business 

The play is taken from the book 
"The Bishop's Mantle" and retains 
that name. It is the story of a 
young rector, stepping into his 
first large church. The inherent 
coldness of some of the wealthy 
members of his church, their lack 
of concern for the surrounding 
slum conditions, plus his love for 
the spirited Miss McColly, keep 
Hilary Laurens and the rest of the 
cast moving at a swift pace 
throughout the play. The plot is 
built up to a fever pitch as Hilary 
refuses to be influenced by the 
dominating and wealthy parishion- 
ers. How me triumphed in keep- 
ing the faith of his fathers, show- 
ing himself worthy of "the Bishop's 
mantle", makes an absorbing, and 
up-to-date drama. 

Actorators Elect 
Fletcher President 

De Forrest Fletcher, junior from 
Blaine, Washington, was elected 
president of Actorators in their 
first meeting of the year held 
October 4. 

Assisting him as secretary will 
be Betty Street Hockett, senior 
veteran in GFC's dramatics de- 

Fletcher, a transfer to GFC 
last year will be remembered by 
the play-going group as Mr. Rut- 
ledge in last season's homecom- 
ing production, "Young Lincoln." 
He also played the role of Rabbi 
Joseph in the spring religious 
drama, "Whatsoever Ye Sow." 

The Actorator gavel will be of- 
ficially handed to Fletcher at the 
club's next meeting by Larry Wy- 
man, outgoing president of the or-

Fewer Frosh Oriented; 
GFC Enrollment Down 

The class of '55, thirty strong, 
have the distinction of being the 
smallest freshman class in eight 
years to enter GFC's portals. 

In September, 1943, when most 
of this year's freshmen were still 
grade-schoolers, only twenty-two 
registered at what was then Pa- 
cific college. But in September, 
1951, the fourteen men and six- 
teen women comprising the pres- 
ent class were duly registered, 
oriented in a week-end program 
and honored by an ASB sponsored 

The class of '55 is only 55 per 
cent the size of last year's crop 

State Newsmen Initiate Annual Meet; 
Pacific U Invites College Editors 

Newspaper and yearbook repre 
sentatives from five Oregon col- 
leges met at Pacific university 
Saturday, September 29, for the 
first annual collegiate journalism 

The meet was sponsored jointly 
by Pacific's journalism depart- 
ment and their chapter of Pi Del- 
ta Epsilon, national journalism 

The student journalists were, 
welcomed the conclave by both 
Barbara Lenmark, Pi Delta pres- 
ident, and Dr. Walter Giersbach, 
president of Pacific university. Dr. 
Giersback, who is an ex-journal- 
ist, expressed himself in favor of 
the work collegiate publications 
are doing in our schools today. 

The morning sessions were de- 
voted separately to newspaper and 
yearbook discussions. Hugh Mc- 
Gilvra, Forest Grove publisher, led 
the newspaper discussion of an 
"Ideal paper from all viewpoints". 
Moderators for the yearbook dis- 
cussion were representatives from 
each of the professions: engraving, 
printing, lithography and photo- 

The members of the discussion 
groups were luncheon guests of 
McCormick hall cafeteria at noon. 

Analysis of 1950-51 publica- 
cation problems, both financial and 
editorial, highlighted the after- 

noon sessions. 

At the last joint meeting of the 
day, Clifford Rowe, professor of 
journalism at Pacific, presented to 
the journalists the need for an. or- 
ganized collegiate publication 
group in Oregon. With the col- 
leges represented at the conclave 
as a nucleus, concrete organiza- 
tional steps were taken in the di- 
rection of such a plan. 

The group, which chose to call 
itself the Oregon Collegiate Pub- 
lication conference, plans to spon- 
sor an annual meet similar to the 
one this year. 

Cascade college will be the host 
school for the conference next 
year. Doris McEachran, Cascade 
representative, was chosen exec- 
utive secretary for the organiza- 
tion and will be in charge of plan- 
ning next year's conference pro- 

George Fox students who at- 
tended this year's meet are Larry 
Wyman, editor of The Crescent, 
and Margaret Weber, who repre- 
sented The L'Ami. 

The Associated Student Body 
of George Fox college extends 
sympathy to Dr. and Mrs. 
George Kenny, David Elliot, 
Yasuko Maekawa and Margaret 
Weber in time of bereavement. 

Two Return, Two Join Faculty 

Newcomers to George Fox col- 
lege this year include four faculty 

Technically, Mr. and Mrs. Mer- 
reil Dade, biology and chemistry 
instructor and librarian, respec- 
tively, are the only newcomers. 
Miss Enid Briggs, instructor of 
women's physical education, grad- 
uated from George Fox in 1950. 
Music theory and piano instructor, 
Miss Barbara Jeanne Sill, taught 
at George Fox college in 1949- 

The Dades come from Garretts- 
ville, Ohio, where Mr. Dade taught 
the sciences at the local high 
school. Mrs. Dade worked in the 
organization of libraries. She was 
high school librarian when they 
decided to come to George Fox. 

Mrs. Dade enjoys studying fam- 
ily history. Mr. Dade, a support- 
er of athletics, coached a county 
champion high school football 
team in Ohio. Photography of 
flowers and animals is a hobby 
for him that is practical along 
biological lines. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Dade did their 

did work at Western Reserve un- 
iversity in the school of library 
science, Cleveland, Ohio. Mr. 
Dade went to Kent State univer- 
sity in Ohio, and this summer did 
graduate work at Oregon State 
college in Corvallis. 

Miss Sill returns, after having 
been away for a year, to resume 
her place on the music staff and 
to take a new job, head resident 
of Edwards hall. 

During her absence Miss Sill 
attended Bob Jones university, 
Greenville, South Carolina, She 
took graduate work in the field 
of sacred music, arranged and di- 
rected musical programs on the 
local radio station and had thir- 
ty-five organ students. 

While she was away she sub- 
scribed to The Crescent to keep 
informed on the happenings at 
George Fox. Even though she 
was busy with her work she often 
thought of George Fox students, 
particularly her Harmony I class. 

Included in her plans for the 
music department this year is a 

stage settings and lighting. In 
the spring she plans to have a 
piano ensemble recital. 

When asked her feelings con- 
cerning George Fox college, she 
said, "I'm very glad to be back." 
She further explained, "I feel 
right at home; however, as plans 
arc now, I will return to Bob Jones 
next fall to complete my graduate 

Miss Enid Briggs, women's phy- 
sical education instructor, was ac- 
tive in club activities during her 
college days at George Fox. She 
was a member of Gold Q, presi- 
dent of Foreign Missionary Fel- 
lowship, secretary of Women's 
Athletic association, and public- 
ity chairman of Student Christian 

Miss Briggs enjoys horseback 
riding and hiking. In fact, she 
likes all sports. 

Following graduation in '50, she 
went to Oregon Medical school in 

Miss Briggs plans definitely on 
winning some games from other 
college teams. She expressed her 

of 55 frosh. Less than three out of 
every ten students one meets in 
the hall are freshmen. 
Second Freshman Week Held 

The freshmen of '51 were init- 
iated into college life via GFC's 
second orientation venture. Be- 
ginning Friday, September 14, and 
continuing through Monday night, 
the frosh worked and played as 
collegians for the first time. 

After their initial meal Friday 
night, a party was given for them 
in Kanyon hall. Saturday's sched- 
ule included an assembly, with 
welcomes from the ASB pres- 
ident, Frank Starkey, and presi- 
dent of the school, Paul E. Park- 
er. English placement, mental and 
preference tests were given that 
first full day, as well as lectures 
on the library, GFC traditions and 

The Lord's day was observed 
with Sunday, school, morning and 
evening worship and Christian En- 
deavor for the new students. The 
music program was described in 
the afternoon following a typical 
GFC Sunday dinner. 

The final day of orientation on 
Monday covered personality, so- 
cial and academic phases of col- 
lege. During the chapel period 
Carl Byrd, college pastor, was 

Orientation Object Changes 

Of the freshman orientation, 
Dean Donald McNichols explains, 
"There have been two changes in 
objectives: we attempted to bring 
the program down to earth and to 
bring to the freshmen a conscious- 
ness of what college is in general, 
and of our own in particular. 

"We tried," he continues, "to 
gather information for placing 
them and to impart information, 
too — with fewer lectures, how- 
ever, than lasf year." 

Other faculty members who 
had parts in the orientation pro- 
gram were Mrs. Dade, Miss Sut- 
ton, Mrs. McNichols, and Miss 

ASB Mixer Welcomes Frosh 

The student body's informal 
"Hello!" for the new students was 
held Tuesday night, September 
18, when the Wood-Mar lawn wa3 
enlivened by the antics of all who 
participated in the annual mixer. 

Verne Martin, ASB social chair- 
man, worked as head of the event 
with Randall Emry, Dick Zeller, 
Jo Hendricks and Donna Jefferson 
helping him as side leaders. Af- 
ter the group played games and 
sang choruses, freshman Don 
Pearson led in a devotional time. 

Ice-cold pop and Dixie cups 
were served as refreshments to 
the jeans-clad group to top off 
the evening. 

Waggoner to Hold 
Religious Meetings 
Oct. 29 to Nov 2 

Rev. Robert Waggoner, pastor 
of Portland's First EUB church, 
will conduct the fall semester re- 
ligious emphasis week, according 
to information released through 
the president's office. Dates for 
the series of meetings are Octo- 
ber 29 through November 2. 

Rev. Waggoner, who is active in 
YFC work, will speak to the stu- 
dents daily during the regular 
morning chapel period, as well as 
at an unannounced evening hour.

To the Student Council 

How about an all school party? 

We start the school year off with a week-end 
round of student mixers, and then settle down to a 
dull social routine of club meetings and home foot- 
ball games. 

Homecoming activities in November "perk" 
things up for one brief week-end — then it's back to 
the old rut. 

It's my prediction that school spirit (that's a 
trite phrase) would increase 100 per cent' if this so- 
cial schedule included a few end-of-the-week parties 
to which the entire student body was invited. 

It is through relaxing together as well as work- 
ing together that a closer bond of unity will be de- 

How about it, Mr. Student Council, let's stop 
leaning on precedent and liven up these dull week- 
ends with some "bang-up" parties!

Circulating The Crescent 

The Crescent will henceforth be distributed 
through the mail box system, each student and facul- 
ty member receiving only one copy of every issue. 

We feel this system will alleviate somewhat the 
problem of papers being scattered about the campus, 
as well as cutting the cost of production. 

Your cooperation in this matter will be appre- 
ciated by the circulation staff. 

You students who have not yet purchased Cres- 
cent subscriptions for your parents or a special 
friend "back home" are urged to contact the circula- 
tion manager at once, in order that every issue of 
The Crescent may be sent to the subscriber. 

Let's all work to get our paper circulating !

(The following is reprinted from the Christian 
Science Monitor.) 

"The ideal college was once defined as Mark 
Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the 
other. That is a far cry from the college built around 
a giant stadium where paid athletes perform for 
cheeripg alumni. 

"The ideal of producing vigorous thinkers has 
taken a severe drubbing from the ideal of producing 
spectacular victories, and the college has sometimes 
seemed to lose its soul even as the team has been win- 
ning it goal. 

"The faculty of William and Mary, second oldest 
college in the United States, in a unanimously adopt- 
ed report, states that 'the insidious influence o£ the 
athletic program has eaten at the most vital element 
of academic life.' 

"If it is true that it would be hard to pay some 
college faculties without the gate receipts from foot- 
ball and other major sports, it is even truer that a 
good faculty is largely wasted on an institution that 
would allow education to become a football to be 
kicked around between games. 

"Moreover, the William and Mary faculty points 
out, big-time athletics can be undertaken only at a 
staggering financial cost. While money for this pur- 
pose is usually forthcoming, colleges frequently find 
it impossible to finance the essential improvements 
which relate to the basic purposes of education. 

"The adventure of learning and the challenge 
of playing, sheepskin and pigskin, both have their 
place in a balanced undergraduate life. 

"But sport remains sport only when it remains 
subordinate to education; when it becomes big busi- 
ness, American youth had better look for another 
Mark Hopkins at the end of another log."

"Losers Weepers; Finders Keepers" 

By Lucy 
To the Editor: 

The following "Items" were lost 
during the summer: 

June 2nd: A Dillon turned up 
missing in Newberg, Oregon. 

June 4th: A clock (or it may 
have been Clark— the report was 
confusing) was lost in Portland, 

August 17th: Some fudge (or a 
Fodge) vanished in Greenleaf, 

August 26th: A Cole-man was 

Stag Mix, 'Sister' Party 
Keep Tradition Intact 

SCU's annual stag mix and big 
and HtUe sister party were held 
Thursday night, September 20. 

Marjorie Larrance, YW chair- 
man and organizer of the girls' 
outing, met her strictly feminine 
group at 5:15 p. m. 

After riding in cars to the Yam- 
hill Locks, the "sisters" amused 
themselves on the green in rous- 
ing games of football, volleyball 
and croquet. Members of the 
five-woman football teams receiv- 
ed bruises and stomped-on feet. 
They were captained by Willcuts 
and Dade of the faculty. 

Picnic tables and a fireplace 
provided the setting for the gals' 
feast on slightly scorched corn on 
the cob, hot dogs and watermelon. 

The masculine group meanwhile 
had gotten together in front of 
Hoover hall with Randall Emry, 
SCU prexy. They engaged them- 
selves in the traditional tug-o'- 
war and other games of the "mas- 
culine type". Ice cream sand- 
wiches provided the finale. 


The National Poetry association 
with headquarters in Los Angeles, 
has again invited students from 
colleges throughout the U. S. to 
submit manuscripts for consider- 
ation for the Annual Anthology of 
College Poetry. 

The closing date for submission 
of manuscripts is November 5. 

Ruth Mills, GFC speciaLstudent 
has twice had an original poem 
accepted for publication in this 
anthology. Included in the 1948 
edition was her well-known 
"Prayer Oasis", and in last year's 
book was "Autumn's Guest". 

Complete instructions for this 
competition are to be fund in an- 
nouncements on both the main hall 
and English department bulletin 


Alas dear girls 
A tragic blow 
Has left our spirits 
Depressed and low. 

Our books are dull; 
The classes bore; 
We've never felt 
So low .before. 

Ah, yes, dear friends, 
Fate's blow is cruel 
To find more girls 
Than boys at school !

September 7th: A "Street" 
ceased to run in Portland, Ore- 

September 7th : A Cook-sley was 
reported missing in Sweet Home, 

Anyone having any information 
as to their whereabouts, please 
report immediately, for the mat- 
ter is considered urgent. 

Those who have been worrying 
about these missing items may re- 
lax in peace now, for after con- 
siderable research, the Crescent 
staff has found the solutions. 

Dillon: The Dillons didn't lose 
their daughter but gained a son, 
for Norma is now Mrs. Dick Bee- 

Clark: Mr. Alvin Anderson 
claimed Lucy for his bride, so 
naturally she's not a clock any- 
more — or was it Clark ">.... 

Fodge: Nadine (now Mrs. Gene 
Mulkey) lost her taste for fudge 
— I mean Fodge. 


Coleman; Elvira always was too 
small and petite to be a Cole- 
MAN, so now she's Mrs. Gone 

Street: There may be one less 
Street in the world, but rejoice: 
Betty May is now Mrs. Gene 

Cooksley: Nigel took Pat off 
the Cooksley roll-call, and placed 
her on his; Mrs. Nigel Shockey. 

So you see, there was no tragedy 
in the losses, but a gain in each 
one. May God bless each couple —

GF Survey Reveals 
Majority Students 
To Be Quakers 

-In a recent campus survey, the 
Friends church is listed as denom- 
inational preference by eighty- 
four of the one-hundred-ten stu- 
dents enrolled at GFC. This trend 
of Quaker predominance has been 
significant of all GFC student 
bodys sirfce i the college's ' initial 
year, 1891. 

Of the twenty-six students who 
hold church affiliation outside the 
Friends group, seven prefer the 
Evangelical United Brethren or- 

The Free Methodist church 
ranks second in the non-Quaker 
student group with four members. 
Three students choose the United 
Presbyterian church, while only 
one has listed the Presbyterian 
church as his preference. There 
are also three Congregationalists 
at GFC. 

The Baptist and Methodist 
churches each have two students 
here, while other churches repre- 
sented by one student include the 
Episcopal United Missionary, As- 
sembly of God and Nazarene. 

Much emphasis is placed upon 
church attendance here at GFC, 
and most of those in attendance 
have already found the "house of 
the Lord" in which they will wor- 
ship for the rest of the school 
year. Many of them have taken 
definite responsibilities in these 
churches, some teaching Sunday 
school classes, others conduct- 
ing junior church or CE groups, 
while some of the ministerial stu- 
dents are accepting- assistant pas-

thy youth", seema to be the theme

How to Get the Most Out of College 

By Paul N. McNeely 
Asst. Professor of Education 

Teachers have often admonish- 
ed students, "Get the most out of 
school." Some students have agreed 
but with a different meaning. 
However, it is assumed that you 
have the first prerequisites for ef- 
fective learning, namely, a deter- 
mination to utilize your opportun- 
ities. The college catalog, pages 
14 and 15, presents the purpose 
of George Fox college. In part it 
is as follows: 

"The fundamental purpose of the 
college is to develop Christian 
character and to help students 
gain the theoretical and practical 
knowledge essential to successful, 
purposeful living." 

A careful reading of these 
pages will enable each student to 
determine if he is in agreement 
with the purpose of the college. 
Assuming there is no fundamental 
disagreement, what can the earn- 
est, purposeful student do to make 
his stay at George Fox college 
really worthwhile? The following 
suggestions should prove helpful: 

1. Strive to develop a well- 
rounded personality. Do not neg- 
lect physical, social, academic or 
religious activities. Make out a 
time schedule for your college ac- 
tivities with your adviser and fol- 

low it until it proves inadequate. 

2. Early in your college career 
solve as many of your emotional^ 
difficulties as possible. Excessive 
emotion and worry are inimical 
to success in college. It is not a 
weakness to come to counselors 
for help. They have had similar 

3. Develop as many worth- 
while skills as possible. Create 
interest when it is lacking. When 
one says, "I am not interested," 
it usually means, "I am rather 
ignorant." It is a psychological 
principle that we like to do the 
things that we can do well. 

4. Most students have study- 
habit problems such as finding it 
hard to concentrate, take useful 
notes, read swiftly and grasp 
meaning, too many interruptions, 
cannot select important points iir 
assignments, material uninterest- 
ing, etc. With these student prob- 
lems in mind, a special book sec- 
tion has been established in the 
college library with materials 
especially written to answer these 
perplexing problems. 

The above suggestions are not 
panaceas for all college problems. 
However, their implementation by 
the conscientious, earnest student 
will result in an approximation of 
individual potentalities. 

Famous Pigskin Relates GFC Tale to Mama Mia 

Some time ago a young pig, who 
was a direct descendent of one of 
the famous three pigs, gave in to 
his inherited urge to seek his for- 
tune. Bidding his family fare- 
well, Ura Hogg solemnly prom- 
ised his Mama Mia (Pig Latin) to 
write at frequent intervals about 
his adventures in the great big 

After being kicked off the stage 
as a ham actor, he became a dis- 
couraged and disheartened re- 
cluse — until a traveling salesman 
discovered his "hide out". Observ- 
ing that it was good hide, he sly- 
ly suggested to Ura that he could 
offer him a job. Too late, Ura 
discovered that the salesman was 
the general manager of C. R. Pig- 
skins, Inc. To make a long tale 
short, it was cut off, and Ura 

Hogg became one of the best 
footballs in the land. 

Thus it was he came into the 
hands of Coach Bajes and GFC'ers. 
It is at this point Ura remember- 
ed his promise to his Mama Mia 
and wrote the following letter: 
Dear Mama Mia: 

At last I have made my start in 
the world, and I can truthfully 
say that no one gets more kicks 
out of life than I do. Being a foot- 
ball is very interesting, and for 
some reason, the players here 
at GFC make it more interesting 
than usual. In tackle practice our 
heavy weight, J. Williams and 
light weight G. Mulkey were play- 
ing opposites. Johnny made a dive 
for Mulkey, but Gene did a flip on 
Johnny's front yard, and hasn't 
been found yet. 

We were all ready for practice 
the first day we missed Bill Mar- 
dock. Our searching trail led to 
the locker room where, BilJ sat 
struggling to get his spiked shoes 
through the small leg holes of his 
football pants.. 

Cooley and Barham are heard 
serenading each other with "Dark 
Eyes" each evening in the show- 

The greatest advantage of being 
a football, however, is that I am 
the envy of all the girls. You see, 
the boys all make passes when I'm 
around. Yes, Mama Mia, this team 
is certainly! I am very proud to 
be kicked around by such a won- 
derful team. 

Your loving son,

man of the committee that chose 
the topics, announces that ladies 
are. to speak at that time on

alry", while the men will give 
"American Travelpg." 

IFAO officers elected for the 
coming year are OSC's William 
Maxwell, president, and vice-pres- 
ident Kellum of Lewis and Clark. 

IFAO's next conclave will be at 
Pacific university on Saturday, 
November 3, for its annual insti-

GFC participants as possible to 

At this meeting, one group will 
discuss the college debate question 
and another will discuss the West- 
ern, Speech Association extem-

Lewis and Clark vs. Willamette, 
will then be held. Extempore prac- 
tice debates and an oral interpre- 
tation section will round out the 
all-day program. Willamette val- 
ley's high school speech teachers 
will be guests qf the association. 

At OSC the topics for the IFAO 
extemporaneous speaking contest 
(to be held in December) were de- 
cided upon by a committee headed 
by Mead of Lewis and. Clark. 
Fletcher was a member of this 
sub-committee. For the ladies it 
will be "McCarthyism"; the men 
will answer the question, "What is

Different discussion sections 
were held for each area of the 
college curriculum. Dean Mc- 
Nichols attended the English sec- 
tion and was appointed chairman 
.of the group which discussed the 
problem of "Whatj place has con-

The English teachers were espe- 
cially concerned with the lpw level 
of word usage and expressive pow- 
er, of ministers, and one of their 
discussions was on "How may we 
better equip our ministers?" An- 
other pertinent problem was "How 
may we encourage young people to

Dean McNichols reports that it 
seems to be the general feeling 
of most of the conference repre- 
sentatives that Christian young 
people have surrendered scholar- 
ship. They expressed their desire 
to help gain back that scholar- 

Most of the colleges represent- 
ed at the convention were from 
the Middle East and, East. Los 
Angeles Pacific, Seattle Pacific, 
and George Fox were the only 
colleges west of the Rockies to 
send representatives. 

Although the conference so far 
has been held on only a four-year 
plan, the English teachers of 
evangelical colleges hope to meet 
again in two years, somewhere 
in the West. 

Dean McNichols reports that he 
feels he got acquainted with what 
most of these schools are doing in 
regard to their curriculum prob-

Faculty Holds Retreat, 
Announces Handbook 

Jennings Lodge was the scene 
of the annual GFC faculty retreat 
held September 10, 11 and 12.. 

One hundred per cent of the 
faculty were in attendance at the 
first meeting at which time it was 
announced that a faculty hand- 
book, nearly completed, will be us- 
ed this year. Included in the man- 

Deputation Groups 
Prepare to Serve 

Miss Barbara Sill, George Fox 
college music instructor in charge 
of tryouts for musical deputation 
teams, reports that more partici- 
pants are needed to round out the 
musical deputation program here 
at GFC. 

"At present," she states, "there 
are but two groups functioning, 
one a sextet, the other a mixed 
quartet and trio combined." The 
sextet, consisting entirely of choir 
members, includes Lucy Edmund- 
son, Lavelle Robison, Marion 
Perry, Pat Parmenter, Lois Bain 
and Marilyn Barnes. 

The mixed quartet as it stands 
now is made up of Betty Brown, 
Jo Hendricks, Yvonne Hubbard, 
and Marvin Hampton. This group, 
Miss Sill emphasized, is badly in 
need of another member, a bass, 
so that one of the members can 
act as an accompanist while the 
other four sing in quartet. With 
the present membership, unless an 
outside accompanist is used, they 
can sing only in trio. This quar- 
tet will be actively engaged in 
deputation work throughout the 
year. Miss Sill deplored the fact 
that there is no men's quartet 
formed yet, and that there is no 
trio other than the one which can 
be formed from the mixed quartet 
already described. She asked that 
interested students contact her so 
that these vacancies might be 

Piano Ensembles Formed 

There are two piano ensemble 
teams, Miss Sill stated. Pat 
Shockey and Ruth Canfield form 
one; the other is composed of 
Maribeth McCracken and Barbara 
Blake. These two teams will not 
be doing deputation work; how- 
ever, they will be playing before 
the student body sometime this 

So far there is but one instru- 
mental ensemble doing deputation 
work. Orville Winters, trumpet, 
and Norman Winters, on the trom- 
bone, will be active as a team 
throughout the year. Miss Sill 
said that there is a drastic need 
for more instrumentalists. A 
trumpet trio, she specified, is 
especially needed. She asks that 
students who have instruments 
suitable for deputation work con- 
tact herself, or Prof. Paul Mills, 
deputation chairman, so that ad- 
ditional instrumental groups might 
be formed. 

ual will be the better practices 
used in Christian education at 
such,colleges at Anderson, Wheat- 
on, Asbury and Seattle Pacific. 

Dr. Edwin T. Hughes, Pacific 
university's vice-president, spoke 
at the opening session of the three- 
day retreat. His . subject was 
"Making the Curriculum Live". 
Associated with PU's department 
of Education, Dr. Hughes holds de- 
grees from the University of Ore- 
gon as well as PU. 

Dr. Gervas A. Carey was leader 
of the devotional period. Later 
in the retreat, Dean Donald Mc- 
Nichols addressed the group on 
"Instructional Improvement and 
Practices", and Miss Sutton ex- 
plained registration procedures. 

Discussion as well as lectures 
marked the retreat sessions. They 
covei*ed many phases of George 
Fox college's activities and im- 
provements that could be made in 
them. Faculty committee meet- 
ings on public relations, deputa- 
tion, library and other facets of 
GFC were also held. 

The social side of the retreat 
was highlighted by parties given 
for Dr. George S. Kenny and Miss 
JJelen Willcuts. Dr. Kenny was 
honored by the faculty on Mon- 
day on completion of his physics 
Ph.D. from California's famed 
Institute of Technology. Miss 
Willcuts, similarly recognized on 
Tuesday evening, had completed 
a Masters degree in home econom- 
ics at Oregon State college.

tober 4, at which time the stu- 
dent council's nominations for 
each ASB office now unfilled were

What is happening' to big col- 
lege athletics? 

Last winter, the sports world 
was shocked by the exposure of' 
several basketball players from 
eastern colleges who were payed 
around $1,000 each a game to hold 
the score down. In each instance 
the gamblers explained to the 
players that they weren't throw- 
ing the game, but merely keeping 
the score within a given number 
of points. In this way, the gambl- 
er could make a fair fortune bet- 
ting that the outcome would be 
within the specified score. 

The second big scandal was one 
which struck deeply at the United 
States Military Academy's high- 
ly regarded honor code. Ninety 
boys admitted to cheating on ex- 
aminations. The connection with 
athletics is that 43 were football 
players. Then, there was the as- 
sertion that the officials who nom- 
inated boys to the academy have 
been picking them too much for 
football ability. 

So, 1951 has been a miserable 
year in sports. However, we be- 
lieve this will not become the 
death note to intercollegiate ath- 
letics, but rather an incentive to 
overcome past mistakes. The bas- 
ketball scandal will discourage big 
time gambling, and the Army 
"cribbing" will make appointments 
to West Point an honor based on 
higher standards than football ab- 

Several years ago, professional 
baseball also had its trouble, in 
the form of the "Black Sox" scan- 
dal. Now it is all an unpleasant 
memory, and baseball officials 
have from that day on guarded 
against its recurrence. 

To get to the root of the recent 
difficulty, you have to go deeper 
than the basketball and football 
players involved. How much rea- 
son do athletes have for playing 
fair when they are handed "under 
the table" morfey for playing ball. 
These boys are given "fake" jobs 
by those in college authority whom 
they should be able to respect. 
The ultimate result . . . trouble. 

AH of which makes us thank- 
ful that George Fox athletes play 
for fun rather than monetary 
gain. We feel that is the real pur- 
pose of college sports.

Bight straight losses, two this 
year and six in 1950, gave the 
Quaker footballers little to brag 
about. The situation is a far cry 
from that of 1948 and '49, Bales' 
first two years, when winning 
teams were fielded. However, 
George is experimenting with some 
changes which may bring the de- 
sired results. 

One "Balesism" the Quakers 
have begun to employ is an eight 
man offensive line. From the 
standard split-T, the fullback is 
pulled into the line on either side, 
between guard and center. It all 
appears to be legal, as the rules 
stipulate that only four men can 
be in the backfield, but say noth- 
ing of having but three. Anyway, 
it tends to confuse the opposition, 
and might prove very good when 
it has been practiced a little more.

Don't look now, but who told the 
Oregon State Beavers they were 
that good? OSC came within six 
points of beating mighty Michi- 
gan State, one of the nation's top 
rated teams. Victories over Utah, 
61-28, and Idaho, 34-6, didn't hurt 
the Beaver rating. With Califor- 
nia ineligible for the Rose Bowl 
(having played three consecutive 
years, the Oregon school may find 
itself in Pasadena on New Tear's 
Day playing in the grandaddy of 
the bowl games. The outcome of 
this Saturday's contest with 
Southern Cal may be the deciding

Will Leave Today

A trip to LaGrande to play

gridders leave this afternoon for 
the Eastern Oregon city. Kick-off 
time is set at 8 p. m. Saturday. 

Eighteen consecutive losses, 
covering several years, gave -the 
Mountaineers national publicity 
last season. They were being bill- 
ed for a post season "fum-bowl" 
game with Reed, loser of 17 
straight, but on the same day 
Reed downed GFC • 13-7, EOCE 
took the measure of Vanport 

This year the Mountaineers ap- 
pear slightly stronger, having 
placed more emphasis on football, 
and being strengthened by trans- 
fers from the Idaho education 
schools which were discontinued. 
Fourteen lettermen are on the 45 
man roster. 

Coach Roy Tatum, who is in his 
second year at EOCE, has Romna

first year at Santa Clara. Jim Mc-

Jim Courtney will take over var- 
sity duties this season. 

After defeating a tough Port-

close heartbreakers to Whitman 
and Vanport. The Mountaineers

that employed by the Balesmen,

Quaker Drop First 
PU JV'S Take 6-0 

George Bales' Quaker gridmen 
dropped a hard fought game to 
the Pacific university JVs by a 
6-0 tally on their home field last 
Friday. . 

The opening period of the tilt 
climaxed as Gene Lukoszyk j>ow- 
ered over from the three yard 
stripe for the only pay play of 
the game. The conversion failed. 
The TD was set up on a 34 yard 
pass from Lukoszyk to Frank 
Cleys, the Badgers' only comple- 
tion of the day. 

Fumbles played a costly role 
in the second quarter as the Quak- 
ers worked their way to the Bad- 
ger's 13 yard line in what seemed 
to be their drive to pay dirt, only 
to lose the ball on a fumble. They 
never threatened closer than this 
although they did move to the 15 
as passes began to click, but the 
final gun killed the threat 

While George Fox out did the 
Pacific university JV's in first 
downs and yardage gained, the

Football Season 
Opened With Loss 

George Fox opened its 1951 foot- 
ball season at Monmouth, Sep- 
tember 29, against the OCE 
Wolves, losing 37-0. 

Both teams were handicapped 
greatly by wet weather, and fum- 
bling was prevalent on both sides 
of scrimmage. 

The big boys from OCE, out- 
classing the Quakers in speed, 
blocking and power, took the open- 
ing kick-off, and eight plays later, 
rolled to the first TD of the ball 
game. The attempted conversion 
was unsuccessful. It was not un- 
til the second period that OCE 
pushed over a second TD, again 
missing the conversion. The half- 
time whistle sounded with the 
Wolves ahead of GFC 12-0. 

Receiving the kick-off for the 
second half, the Quakers returned 
the ball only seven yards in three 
plays and were forced to kick. 
OCE took over on their own 38 
yard line, and then marched in 
five plays to the third touchdown 
of the game. Their failure to con- 
vert left them with an eighteen 
point lead. 

George Fox came to life on the 
next kickoff and under the quar- 
terbacking of Sammy Andrews 
started a march downfield which 
took them from their own 20 to 
their own 49. They were again, 
however, forced to kick, and once 
more the Wolves romped to an- 
other TD after five plays wgth 
Deavcr carrying. They passed for 
the extra point, and the score read 
25-0 at the end of the third period. 

Soon after the final quarter be- 
gan, Bud Mardock recovered an 
OCE fumble on the Wolves' 42, 
but it was for nought as the Quak- 
ers mimiced the fumble on their 
second play, and OCE again start- 
ed a power drive which went 58 
yards in eight plays, with Mich- 
aels going over to make it =-31-0, 
the conversion kick being blocked. 

A blocked kick on the Quakers' 
nineteen yard line late in the 
fourth quarter set up JDCE's final 
TD and boosted the final score to 

feats. As yet the Quakers have 
been unable to dent their oppon- 
ents' goal line, while giving up 
37 points to OCE and six to Pa- 
cific JV.
